i thought this memoir was absolutely dreadful. i concede that i have a well-documented irritation with stunt memoirs, in which someone tries some stupid bullshit for a year & then writes a memoir documenting their little experiment. but anna david's experiment also ...more
I love a good memoir, if you lived with sheep for a year or ate only red foods for a year or tried to walk backwards for a year I probably read about your journey of self discovery. I kid of course but there does seem to be a plethora of books out there by people who choose ...more
My favorite bits of Falling For Me came when David was at her most vulnerable and self-deprecating. I appreciated her unique brand of humor and could definitely s ...more

At first I didn't want to like Anna. For all her claims that she wanted to learn to let go and enjoy life, most of the book seemed to be about wanting to find a boyfriend. But after awhile I had to really ask myself - is it wrong to be on the search for a relationship? Is it wrong to take antiqu ...more
Anna David is my favorite author. I loved her other books, Party Girl, Bought, and Reality Matters
I had to take a 3 hour train ride today, and I read the entire book , Falling For Me.
Unlike Anna's other books which were sexy, fun , and exciting to read. This book was a personal memoir.
Anna was willing to share so much of personal life with us, the reader in this book that I could not put it down.
I know that Anna is a relationship expert, and thanks to Social Networking, I know that she is also ...more
Falling for Me is one of these books. Anna David is nearing forty and is dismayed to find that she is child-less and husband-less. After yet another hopeless and doomed love affair, David decides to use a book from 1962, Helen Gurley Brown’s Sex and the Single Girl, as her template to finding ...more
I never connected with Anna; she seemed rather self-absorbed and superficial, and sometimes over-the-top. As I read the book, I just wanted to shake some sense i ...more
The good: The author has a great writing voice. I could hear it so clearly in my head and I found myself laughing half the time at the things she puts herself through to find a guy. But she never comes across to me as desperate. She's an intelligent woman who's feeling a little lost and who's hardly ventured out of her comfort zone. (Something I can relate to!). So hearing her adventures into online and speed dating, trying to new things and traveling was s ...more
Seems to me she doesn't/didn't want to help herself and like so many others, just sat around wallowing in her sad self-pity hoping someone of the opposite sex would take her out of it. Pathetic.
Though she gets help from her therapist (who dispenses some fine, insightful advice we could all use) and though she does decide on her own to try new things despite her inse ...more
I was intrigued by this premise as it seemed like it might be more hilarious than helpful, but I was wrong in that assumption. Turns out the book has some excellent advice -- some leading to positive outcomes and others n ...more
